By posting your maps, art, files, etc that you have
created/modified to this site, you agree to submit them
as a public domain work and subject them to that legal
classification. This new policy goes into effect
retroactively from the creation of this forum and
starts on 06/23/2018. By posting your work/assets to
this forum you are agreeing that anyone anywhere at
anytime can reprint, reuse, modify, sell, or repack
them as though it was listed as a public domain piece
of work. If you do not wish to have your work listed
here you can delete it/them at anytime and if you need
assistance, please send a private message via this
forum to any of the administrators here.

*** Posting that an asset or map is not for
commercial use will NOT exempt you from this rule, so if
you do not want your work posted here and cannot delete
it, then contact a system administrator! ***



If you need clarification about public domain law and
how it works Google the words Public Domain Copyright.

This post is pretty
straightforward but if you have any questions , please
send any administrator a private message and we will
answer your questions in order to clarify.

This is the only notification you will receive about
the policy change as we do not have a way to send out a
mass email or text message, etc.

*** Addendum about copyright ***
Further clarification about copyright as it pertains to
"modified" images. Again, keep in
mind that all images here are posted as free use, public
domain, unless uploaders have posted
a file without permission.

Users who modify files and then use them for commercial
use is fine unless it is being put
into an art/object/assets pack. So just changing the
color of an item does not count.
However, if the objects are being used to make a
"preset" such as:

ble-4_bg.png">
Which uses other bits, but being put together makes a
new preset.

Another exception is if the item has been modified that
you can no longer recognize the
original "theme" such as taking a small bit a wagon
trail tracks and making a bigger preset
or a configuration that never existed such as:




The tracks created were from smaller bits, but because
there are done in a bigger "preset" this is allowed.
Hopefully this helps to clarify about "modified works".

Someone sent me a private message stating:

"Sorry to bother, silly question regarding the terms of
service, just to be sure and through.

The line "This new policy goes into effect
retroactively from the creation of this forum and
starts on 06/23/2018"

Does this mean that images and maps posted before the
date of the post are also considered public domain?"

The answer is Yes.

AFAIK, that policy was already in effect over a decade ago, and Daniel is merely re-stating it and putting it front-and-center, for any who weren't aware of it.
